The models are fitted with a five-pole motor with flywheel, a close coupler with guide mechanism and a NEM 662 (Next18) interface. The three-light LED head end signal changes automatically from white to red in accordance with the travelling direction. The front-end lighting can be switched off completely or partly by means of the contacts strips. The factory-equipped sound generators of the DCC variants produce sounds that are faithful to the original model.
FLEISCHMANN will initially launch the new Traxx 3 as a new design in two variants: as Class 187 of DB AG (738901 / 738971) and as the colourful 487 001 of Swiss rail transport company “swiss rail traffic” (738902 / 738972).
